A geodatabase containing five counties from the same state of the same type, i.e. such as census tract boundaries. These are the only files contained in the geodatabase. In this operation the five counties will be merged together to form a single file regional geography. In addition, the created regional geography will be used to clip a river and a railroad files at a statewide geography. The resulting merged counties and the clipped files will be saved back to the same geodatabase.
The river and railroad files should be in the same file folder and contain no additional information. Make sure the files use appropriate naming convention such as: KY_Region_Louisville_Railroads.
Create a single tool that produces the clipping and merging. The tool will have two or three different inputs. One for the geodatabase, one for the river and railroad file folder and potential the output location. The required information for your instructor should include the script, the screen image of the input window, the contents of the geodatabase and output maps of the results.
